Investing in the real estate market and buying a home or property is one of the best investments anyone can make. The venture would bring a steady, predictable income with a projected yearly increase as the property’s value grows. However, one of the significant challenges with real estate can be traced back to its management, as owning real estate is only half the work. The property has to be optimally managed; finding tenants, collecting rent, attending to repairs and maintenance, and handling complaints are some of the challenges of owning a property. Seeing this problem, real estate broker Duke Kimhan has made it his life’s mission to focus on customer satisfaction and help property owners with their rental properties as if they were his own. Together with his team at Hawaii Pacific Property Management, Duke provides unparalleled property management services that have generated waves in Oahu, Hawaii.

The property management expert shared that he has encountered some challenges while building his business but amplified that the key to success is understanding the landscape in its entirety, and challenges play a crucial role in acquiring knowledge.
In addition to his incredible work ethic, Duke Kimhan believes property management encompasses all aspects of real estate, from ensuring that the property makes it to the right market to keeping it in the best shape possible for its future tenants. “It’s all about ensuring that each property is equipped to welcome a family or an individual looking to build a home,” he says.
